I don't know why, but lately if I cook a roast in the crockpot on low all day, it drys out. I thought you could leave things in there as long as you wanted.

Anyways tonight I'm cooking boneless chicken with chili sauce, Uncle Bobs red potatoe dish and spiced carrots. I made the chili sauce yesterday and the chicken is marinating in this combo (yogurt, garlic, other misc. stuff). I made this chicken dish once a very long time and it came out very good.

Tonight dinner will be chicken fajita's. < Hope I spelled that right.
Warm flour tortillas, peppers, onions, garlic, chicken marinated in typical Mexican spices, with salad of avocados, lettuce, tomatoes, chips/salsa, refried beans, and Spanish rice. Sounded good to me, put it to the man and asked him, he says sounds good.

So what are you making/eating/doing for dinner tonight?
we must have both done the first one at the same time.

Legend, I'm having the same problem and was wondering if my crockpot has a higher temp than my old one.

I think I read somewhere that that is the case with the newer ones. I have to really watch mine, too. A whole chicken (4 lbs) can cook in mine on low in 6 hours rather than the 8-10 a recipe will call for!

We're having ham, fresh green beans, and twice-baked sweet potatoes.

YT I have you to thank for tonight's supper! You mentioned a sweet and sour recently which got be craving it and its DH's birthday and he's been missing Chinese food (Chinese food in Italy is not so good at all!). I make good s&s but haven't made it for ages, and DH love, love, loved it! And, because its a public holiday DH was at home, we had a lazy day and DH only worked a bit on some pro bono stuff, and loved helping make the supper. Thank you for the inspiriration!

So, sweet and sour chicken, and birthday cake, and blueberries and strawberries! It was hot again so we had not eaten before supper, which we had sort of five ish, the day is all over the place!
